IEBC gives Uhuru, Raila one-week ultimatum over election officials’ list
IEBC has given President Uhuru Kenyatta and NASA leader Raila Odinga one week to peruse the new list of election officials.
The electoral body has assured the two candidates that they will furnish them with complete list of election officials who will conduct the October repeat poll on Saturday.
According to the IEBC, the candidates and their respective parties will have until October 6 to make their comments or reservations before publication of the final list of officials on October 12.
By October 4, the electoral body said, they will have completed the procurement of election materials-ballot boxes and KIEMS kit.
The materials will be received in the country by October 14 while the transport services and other such arrangements will be concluded by October 20.
The dates come amid an impending deep rift between NASA and Jubilee over disagreements over sticky issues in the upcoming election.
A consultative talk that were to be led by the IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati collapsed on Thursday following a walk-out by NASA leasers.
